Oppo has launched the Reno 3 lineup in its home market, while the Western world is still recovering from the feast of food and emotions and presents that is Christmas. The lineup comes in two variant – the Reno 3 Pro and the Reno 3, both of which come with 5G connectivity.

The vanilla Oppo Reno 3 comes with the same 6.5-inch OLED screen, but the selfie camera is in a waterdrop notch. It retains the 32MP though.
There are significant changes on the rear – the Reno 3 has a 64MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultrawide shoote, a black and white sensor and a portrait camera.
The Mediatek Dimensity 1000L has four Cortex-A77 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores in the CPU, while the GPU is Mali-G77. The chip manufacturer calls it “World’s fastest sub-6GHz 5G SoC” because it can reach up to 4.7 Gbps performance and supports the full range of networks from 2G to 5G.
Oppo promises the Reno 3 will be up to 20% faster than a platform with Cortex-A76 cores and will be even smarter – there is a custom APU 3.0, coupled with the chipset.
The Reno 3 also comes with VOOC 4.0 quick charge for the 4,025 mAh battery. The fingerprint scanner is under the screen, and of course, the user interface is ColorOS 7.
